Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series

Dr. Nathalie Cabrol to talk on May 18, 2005 at 7 p.m.


Dr. Cabrol of NASA Ames Research Center (SETI Institute) in Mountain View will give an illustrated, non-technical talk entitled "What Are We Finding on Mars". The talk will be at the Smithwick Theater on the Foothill College Campus. The talk is free and open to all. One of my favorite parts of these talks is when the kids ask questions at the end. Parking is $2.

Dr. Cabrol was the champion in the process that selected Gusev Crater as the landing spot for the Spirit rover. She is also working on a project to use robotics that look for signs of life in the Atacama Desert of Chile. A native of Paris, France, she is a planetary geologist and specializes in Mars hydrology. For more information on Dr. Cabrol see .

This talk winds up the 2004-2005 series for the Silicon Valley Astronomy Lecture Series. This series was another great season for the "Fraknoi Talks."
